Since the color of Okapi coats has been filling my head so much the last few days, I thought of a solution for the Bullyland coat colors. Perhaps they will need daily shots of Iron and sessions at the local tanning salon!!!!! Surprised Shocked Laughing question question

Christophe, i was on your side of the discussion already, so i don't understand why you named me between the other people, but is doesn't matter... scratch

I agree that the position of the model is great, the colour and ribcage are definitely not in my eyes... Rolling Eyes
Even when it would be possible to see the ribs sometimes, it isn't neccesary to show them on models, and specially not so odd...

Well Roger, here on the forum are many people that know very much about nature and his processes...
I do give lectures, specialised on tropical fish for example, and the knowledge about the evolution, and everything that comes with that, like genetics, are very usefull for a tropical fish-breeder and bird-breeder like me, and specially when i do give those lektures.
I have to tell the people how things work in nature, and on the latest standards and news, i feel that as an obligation in my hobby's.
But i could give one about a lot of animal-families to, no problem, as i am interested in animals since i was a little child, and in 48 years, a lot of knowledge builds up when you are interested in the subject, isn't it. Rolling Eyes Laughing
But it is good to know, that we have more people(like you), that know more then the average person, and that is another thing that makes this forum to the succes it is right now. cheers

I dont understand. This german site shows a photograph in detail of the model but the paint colour is much darker. Could Torben have gotten a painted model from a batch which they forgot to add the dark colour in the factory?

Does anyone have the Okapi with the dark painting as pictured here?

I agree with you, the figure has Aspects Some very good and Some That Are not so good.
But I Already take a decision:
The okapi is a rare figure in the animal replicas, we have very Few.
Then I'll buy it. arrow

Well here I am and really dissapointed Sad What about their ribs? What about their colour? What about their size? Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I really don´t like Bullyland... Pose of female is amazing and i love her head... Baby´s head is too big and body too short... it looks weird.
I´ll buy them because i loooooove okapis but they are... not my favourite. Papo okapi is the best still!!!

Willy, nobody in that discussion was against me my friend Laughing . I named you because I quoted you... Nothing more. And I agree it doesn't matter cheers drunken

Actually, The only people who are not on my (our Wink ) side are people who think that collecting small animal models is bullshit Laughing Laughing Laughing . And they are none in that so good place Very Happy

Hi Kiki I am glad that we can agree to disagree at this forum. That is what makes this forum so great. I think we both have very strong arguments and in many ways have very valid points. The world of nature is a very complex and beautiful web. I think we can both agree on that! Thanks for your opinions. Its nice to hear your point of view..

I will let you know that the Eastern Bongos that I saw in Kenya were a very dark rich red. There coats were beautiful russet in color. There coats are very different than Okapis. Being an Okapi fanatic I have made it a point to visit as many zoos in North America that house them. Currently there are about 25 zoos that have Okapis in N. America and I have been to 22 of them. I will be able to visit 2 more this spring. I will say of these Okapis 95 % of them have been a very dark brown coat.

I can live with the new Bullyland models but not the color. Perhaps I may send them to England to visit Harriet so she can give them her magical touch with the paint brush.

I agree Larry and I like this place because we can discuss without hurting or being hurted if we disagree. I live near Belgium and there is some okapis in zoo because the Congo was a Belgian colony and they are darker than the pics of Torben Wink .

My meaning was : Could we say the savannah antelopes are often light brown because it help them to avoid predators ? Why not... In the savannah, it's agreat advantage to be in the same colors than the grass and bushes. If those antelopes were darker they will not survive ... Then come a Roan antelope... More brown but, well it survives... Then come a sable antelope... cyclops confused scratch . Well... Let's go to bed Laughing

Thank you so much Harriet sunny

I love the pose of the mother, the way she look at her calf... But that ribs are really terrible. How can Bullyland chose a wonderful pose and suddenly thought : Hey, it is too good, can we do somehing to the ribbcage ? Laughing

Thanks all, glad you liked the pictures flower

Christophe Laughing I really wonder why Bullyland did those strange ribs scratch I'm going to try and get rid of them when I repaint.
I love her pose too, the position of the back legs I particularly like and of course her head craning round is very graceful, nice idea.

They are adorable, Harriet. cheers
Wonderful pictures, too Very Happy
I love the calf, - isn`t it the only okapi calf in the market ?

About the ribcage, - I do not think it is a ribcage, I always thought it was the skin being a bit loose after her having recently given birth, so it wrinkels as she turns her head scratch

Well, exaggerated wrinkling , - and I may be wrong of course Embarassed

At least it makes her different from the others lol!

Thanks so much for the pictures Harriet. I really wanted to see proper close up pictures. I agree about the rib cage but I do want them now having seen your pictures.

I know what photo they used to make the mother:





I would also love to see someone repaint the Okapi so fit in more with the others.

Harriet thank you for the comparative pictures of very good quality as usual.
okapi despite its coast is a highly visible model for my taste, agréableet is on my wish list,
the calf as well, but we can do better.
However I want to thank Bullyland families that make us comfortable throughout and take risks.

cheers sunny Wink

I like those okapi's Harriet, although i said something about those ribcages when these models were introduced some time ago...
To bad for such nice models... Laughing
But i am sure, you can make them even better, and we are all curious to see them after you re-modelled them! cheers
